Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
The Gnadenhutten Massacre March 8, 1782
Since the English could now easily enter the interior into Ohio and beyond, Anishinabe ogimak had become very enraged and decided to take out their frustrations on Indians who sided with the evil whites. The Anishinabe Indians living at the Moravian Missionary known as Gnadenhutten, were Christian converts and considered by the whites to be friendly. Anishinabe ogimak wanted nothing to do with Christianity and Indians who converted to the corrupted religion. On March 8, 1782, a force of Anishinabe soldiers launched an assault on the Anishinabe Christian settlement. After they finished the killings, 96 white Indians had been killed. It was a wake up call to Indians who openly sided with the whites. Anishinabe ogimak would not tolerate it. The English were now sending more English soldiers to the Ohio region to wage war on the Anishinabek by this time.
